She’s here

I’m overjoyed to share that our most precious daughter, Cora, arrived on July 16th at 1:29 am. She was 8.5lbs and 21 inches long and full of sweetness from the start. She is everything amazing I’d ever imagined and even more.

I hope to write about her birth because I’ve always found it so interesting to read what it’s really like. The short version: 18 hours long, barely avoided a c-section but have 4th degree tearing. Baby had the cord around her neck and needed the vacuum to speed her way into the world. I’m mostly just glad she’s safe and healthy, my tears will heal in time. But it was far from the ideal scenario. I am feeling pretty ok with it all though. Percosets help :).

Cora is more than I ever could have dreamed. She is quite honestly so sweet and gorgeous and just perfect. She’s sleeping, eating and snuggling and barely crying. I have no idea how we lucked out with this perfect babe but I am thankful every drowsy minute that I finally found my bebe.

  1. Congratulations!!! I’m so very happy for you. Enjoy every moment, despite being in pain you will look back at these early moments so fondly.
    I can’t wait to read your birth story. Ours seem somewhat similar. (I had my daughter at 12:57 a.m. after 20 hours of labor, 8.5 lbs, barely avoided C section, serious tearing, vacuum delivery…).
    I love her name, by the way. Hope you’ll post pics!!

    • Oh man, our births sound so alike! I’m actually really shocked at how good I feel. Granted I’m still taking percosets, but I’m not in much pain. I’m giving myself a week and then I’ll try to switch to straight advil or something…

  2. Congratulations! Sounds pretty painful what you had to go through 😦 I hope it’s true what they say that you quickly forget about the pains. Enjoy your little bundle of joy πŸ˜‰

    • I am actually already sort of forgetting how upset I was during labor. It’s amazing what happens when you follow one intense experience with days of bliss and no sleep. You forget everything! Haha
